In My Mailbox (5/11 - 5/16)

I got some really exciting books this week :D Yay! What did YOU get?

This Is What I Want To Tell You
Heather Duffy Stone

Nadio and his twin sister, Noelle, always had a unique bond. And somehow, Keeley Shipley fit perfectly into their world. But when Keeley spends the summer in England, she comes home changed, haunted by a dark memory. As she and Nadio fall in love, they try to hide it from Noelle, who's jealously guarding a secret of her own. Slowly, a life-long friendship begins to crack under the crushing weight of past trauma, guarded secrets, jealousy, obsession . . . and an unexpected love that could destroy them.

Thanks to Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf for holding the contest that I won this from! I can't wait to read it, it looks really good :) And I absolutely love the cover on it as well.

Jane In Bloom
Deborah Lytton

Jane’s big sister, Lizzie, has always been the center of attention. No one ever pays attention to boring, plain Jane. But when Jane’s twelfth birthday marks the beginning of Lizzie’s fi nal descent into a fatal eating disorder, Jane discovers that the only thing harder than living in her big sister’s shadow is living without her.

In the wake of tragedy, Jane learns to look through her camera lens and frame life differently, embracing her broken family and understanding that every girl has her season to blossom. Spare and vulnerable prose marks this beautiful debut that is at once heartbreaking and uplifting.

Thanks to In Bed With Books for holding the contest that I won this from. I've been wanting to read it for a while so I'm really excited! I've been reading a lot of books about eating disorders lately though, so I'll probably save it for a while.

Lucienne Diver

Gina Covello's Perks and Pitfalls
of Vamp Life
1. Hello?! Eternal youth and beauty!

2. Free. Designer. Clothes.

3. My hot new boyfriend Bobby went from chess dud to vamp stud.

4. No reflection! First order of business: turn my own stylist to stop the downward spiral from chic to eek.

5. Vampire vixen Mellisande has taken an interest in my boyfriend, and is now transforming the entire high school into her own personal vampire army. If anyone's going to start their own undead entourage it should be me.

I guess I'll just have to save everyone from fashion disasters and other fates worse than death.

Thanks to Linda Gerber for hosting the contest that I won this from! I absolutely love the cover.

Jane in Bloom sounds really compelling. Am interested to hear your thoughts on the book esp as it's dealing with pretty sensative subject matter.
